The financial information of the aforesaid branch has been audited by the Branch Auditors whose report has been received by us.

2. Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

The Company''s Board of Directors is responsible for the matters stated in Section 134(5) of the Companies Act, 2013 ("the Act") with respect to the preparation and presentation of these standalone financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting principles generally accepted in India, including the Accounting Standards specified under Section 133 of the Act, read with Rule 7 of the Companies (Accounts) Rules, 2014. This responsibility also includes maintenance of adequate accounting records in accordance with the provisions of the Act for safeguarding of the assets of the Company and for preventing and detecting frauds and other irregularities; selection and application of appropriate accounting policies; making judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and design, implementation and maintenance of adequate internal financial controls, that were operating effectively for ensuring the accuracy and completeness of the accounting records, relevant to the preparation and presentation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view and are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

3. Auditor''s Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these standalone financial statements based on our audit. We have taken into account the provisions of the Act, the accounting and auditing standards and matters which are required to be included in the audit report under the provisions of the Act and the Rules made there under. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing specified under Section 143(10) of the Act. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor''s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal financial control relevant to the Company''s preparation of the financial statements that give a true and fair view in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity''s internal control . An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by Company''s directors, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion on the standalone financial statements.

4. Basis of Qualified Opinion

a. We invite attention to note no 33(c) relating to one of the subsidiaries M/s Franco Tosi Meccanica S.p.A (FTM). As described in the note, the control of the operating/core asset of the said FTM has been transferred to the successful bidder and the Company is entitled only to the surplus arising out of disposal of non-core assets of FTM after paying off all other creditors/liabilities of FTM. The funded and non-funded exposure of the Company to FTM is Rs. 892.19 crores as at 31st March 2016 including towards the corporate guarantees issued towards the bank guarantees issued in favour of the said FTM. The management as detailed in the said note is awaiting the details of the surplus arising out of the disposal of the non-core assets and the recovery of the liabilities there from. The management expects that the surplus will be adequate to cover the exposure however in the absence of any indication of the value of the non-core assets or the surplus we are unable to quantify the possible provision towards the exposure of the Company and therefore also the effect on the loss/profit of the Company for the quarter and the period ended 31st March 2016.

b. We invite attention to note no 32, detailing the recognition of claims during the year ended 31st March 2016 in respect of ongoing, completed and/or terminated contracts aggregating to Rs. 1343.97 crores including a further claim of Rs. 300 crores during the quarter ended 31st March 2016 but excluding amounts recognized in quarters before September 2015 of Rs. 313.25 based on management estimates of reasonable realization which were subject matter of our emphasis of matter in our earlier reports. These additional claims are recognized only on the basis of opinion of an expert in the field of claims and arbitration as part of the requirement of the Strategic Debt Restructuring scheme with the lenders. In view of the above-mentioned circumstances and facts we are unable to comment upon the amounts recognized, its realization and the consequent effect on the financial results of the quarter ended 31st March 2016 and the eighteen-month period ended 31st March 2016.

c. We invite attention to note no 33(e), As reported by the branch auditors, the exposure of the Company through the Branch in SAE Powerlines Srl, Italy ("SAE"), a subsidiary of the Company and ATSL BV, Netherlands, the holding company of SAE, towards investments, loans, including guarantees towards the acquisition loan taken by the SPV are Rs. 196.84 crores. The Branch has made provision for impairment of investments and Loan aggregating to Rs. 62.52 crores and provision of Rs. 88.29 crores for risk and contingencies for corporate guarantees for acquisition loan of the SPV and thus, the net exposure of the Branch is Rs. 46.03 crores. The Branch has a further net exposure of Rs. 139.48 crores after provision of Rs. 65.57 crores towards receivables due from SAE, which are outstanding for a long time. The Company had carried out a valuation of the business of SAE by an independent valuer in September, 2014, who determined an enterprise value of Rs. 71.34 crores, which however is not updated to cover the present financial position. In the absence of a fresh valuation of the business of SAE and in the absence of audited financial Statements of SAE for the period ended 31st December 2015, we are unable to comment whether further impairment provision is required with respect to the total net exposure of the Branch of Rs. 185.51 crores in respect of loans, investment and receivables.

d. The Company''s Application for managerial remuneration aggregating to Rs. 26.29 crores for the Chairman and Managing Director has been rejected for the accounting years 2012-13 and 9-month period ended December 2013 and 30th September 2014 and for the current eighteen months ended 31st March 2016 for want of NOC from the CDR lenders. The MCA has directed to recover the excess remuneration or make an application for waiver. The Company had once again made applications to the Ministry for the aforementioned periods on obtaining the NOC from the CDR Lenders. The Board however on the recommendation of the Nomination and Remuneration Committee has, subject to shareholders’ approval, decided to seek approval from the Central Government for waiver of excess remuneration paid. Pending the same no adjustments have been made for the amount of Rs. 26.29 crores. In the absence of the final decision of the MCA pursuant to the application being made by the Company we are unable to ascertain the impact on profits on this account for the eighteen-month period ended 31st March 2016 (Refer Note 23(a)).

e. Trade receivables and loans and advances includes an amount of Rs 355.56 crores in respect of disputes in six projects of the Company and/or its SPVs. The Company is pursuing legal recourse/ negotiations for addressing the disputes in favour of the Company Pending the conclusion of the matters we are unable to state whether any provisions would be required against the Company''s exposure (refer Note 35(iv)).

f. The Company has given unsecured loans of Rs. 19.83 crores to its joint ventures as a lead partner for which it does not have any prior approval of the members (refer Note 12(vi)).

g. We invite attention to note no 11A(f) relating to the decision for sale of 30% interest of Gammon Infrastructure Projects Limited (GIPL) held through two wholly owned subsidiaries and its consequent classification and valuation in these financial statements. The carrying value of the equity interest in GIPL is Rs. 884.41 crores held through the two wholly owned subsidiaries. The current market value based on the traded price as on March 31, 2016 is Rs. 270.25 crores. The management contends that the market price is not indicative of the intrinsic value of GIPL considering that the same is a strategic Investment. However in the absence of a detailed valuation of the intrinsic value of GIPL being carried out by the Management we are unable to comment whether any provision for diminution or impairment in the carrying amount of the equity interest is required.

5. Qualified Opinion

Except for the possible effects of the matter mentioned hereinabove in the basis of qualified opinion, in our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, the standalone financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India of the state of affairs of the Company as at March 31, 2016, its profit and its cash flows for the period October 01, 2014 to March 31, 2016.

6. Emphasis of Matter:

Without qualifying our opinion, we draw attention to the following matters:

(a) We draw attention to Note no 35(i), 35(ii) and 35(iii) of the Statement relating to recoverability of an amount of Rs.135.75 crores as at 31st March 2016 under trade receivables in respect of contract revenue where the Company has received arbitration awards in its favour in respect of which the client has preferred an appeal for setting aside the said arbitration awards, recognition of claims while evaluating the jobs of Rs. 153.29 crores and Rs. 155.03 crores where the Company is confident of recovery based on advanced stage of negotiation and discussion. The recoverability is dependent upon the final outcome of the appeals & negotiations getting resolved in favour of the company.

(b) Note no 36 detailing that the lenders have invoked Strategic Debt Restructuring and have converted part of their principal and interest outstanding into equity shares and as part of the SDR scheme is in the process of approving the restructuring scheme, which includes carving out the EPC business, and the T & D business into separate entities wherein new investors would be invited to take control as detailed in the Note. Pending the same due to the liquidity situation and the continuing losses the Company is unable to meet its various liabilities on time. These conditions, along with other matters as set forth in the Note, indicate the existence of a significant uncertainty as to timing and realization of cash flow to support the going concern assumption and operations of the Company.

(c) The Company as detailed in Note 33(b) has exposure of Rs. 887.82 crores towards the combined stake of 67.50 %, which includes 35% stake which is under process of being transferred in favour of M/s Gammon Holding Mauritius Limited, wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, that is pending from a long time. Considering the combined stake held through two separate SPVs, the Company''s exposure does not require any impairment which is supported by the order book position and valuation made by an independent valuer.

(d) Note no 33(g) the accounts of a subsidiary M/s Campo Puma Oriente S.A. have not been audited since December 2012, due to certain disputes with the partner in the project. The exposure of the Company in the said subsidiary is Rs. 411.67 crores net of provisions made. The company has received a valuation report for $ 60 Million approximately from an independent merchant banker for its share. On the basis of this report and the other matters detailed in the note the management is confident that there will be no provision required for impairment

(e) (e) Note no 12(v) G&B Contracting LLC where the management has made assertions about the investment and reasons why the same does not require any provision towards diminution in the value of investment and loans provided. Relying on the assertions no adjustments have been made in the financials towards possible impairment.

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor''s judgement, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity''s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a reasonable basis for our qualified opinion.

Basis For Qualified Opinion

a. We invite attention to Note 33 (c) (i) and (ii) relating to the accounts of one of the subsidiaries M/s Franco Tosi Meccanica S.p.A (FTM) which have not been audited since December 2011 and the details of the application for pre-insolvency composition agreement including the plans to sell the business of the subsidiary.

The Company''s exposure in the said subsidiary (net of provisions and credit balance in Foreign Exchange Translation Reserve) is Rs. 1162.87 Crore which includes the loans made and Investments made (net of provisions) of Rs. 268.06 Crore, the exposure of corporate guarantee towards the borrowing made by the overseas SPV through which the step down subsidiary is held ofRs. 302.94 Crore and corporate guarantee exposures in respect of the said FTM by way of corporate guarantee issued by the Company towards the non-fund based limits granted to the said FTM based on which guarantees were given to the projects of the said subsidiary of Rs. 591.87 Crore. In the absence of the financial statements and any indication of the outcome of the pre-insolvency composition agreement we are unable to comment on the adequacy of the provision towards diminution in the value of investments and loans resulting in the net carrying value as aforesaid.

b.

c. The Auditors of M/s SAE Powerlines S.r.l, Italy (SAE), a subsidiary of the Company have expressed their inability to opine on the financial statements in view of the said SAE''s ability to operate as a going concern being at risk and the directors of the said SAE have highlighted the liquidity crisis. The total exposure of the Company in SAE and ATSL Holdings B.V., Netherlands the Holding Company of SAE towards investments including guarantees towards the acquisition loan taken by SPV and guarantees towards the operating business of SAE is Rs. 328.06 Crore. The Company has made provision for impairment of investments and loan of Rs. 110.45 Crore and provision for risk and contingencies towards corporate guarantees for acquisition loan of the SPV of Rs. 88.29 Crore resulting in the net exposure of the Company at Rs. 129.32 Crore. Attention is invited to Note 33 (e) where the Company contends that the carrying value of Rs. 129.32 Crore does not need any provision despite the valuation of the business of SAE by independent valuers indicating an excess carrying value of Rs. 55.02 Crore that has not been provided for.

d. The Company''s application for managerial remuneration aggregating to Rs. 14.32 Crore for the Chairman and Managing Director has been rejected for the accounting years

2011- 2012,2012-2013 and 9 month period ended December 2013. The Company has preferred appeals for review of the matters with the Central Government for all the years for which the same is rejected.

2012- 2013,9 month period ended December 2013 and 30 September 2014 no adjustments have been made for an amount of Rs. 17.18 Crore.

e. The Company has during the year after 1 April 2014 granted unsecured loans to one of its Joint Ventures beyond the limits specified in Section 186 of the Companies Act 2013 without the prior approval of the members in general meeting.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the possible effects of the matters described in our basis for qualified

opinion paragraph, the financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the

accounting principles generally accepted in India:

(c) In the case of the Cash Flow Statement, of the cash flows for the year ended on that date.

Emphasis of Matter

Without qualifying our report we invite attention to

(a) We draw attention to Note 35 of the explanatory notes relating to recoverability of an amount of Rs. 167.23 Crore as at September 2014 under trade receivables in respect of contract revenue where the Company has received arbitration awards in its favour in respect of which the client has preferred an appeal for setting aside the said arbitration awards, recognition of claims while evaluating the jobs of Rs. 451.56 Crore towards work done on account of cost overruns arising due to client delays, changes of scope, deviation in design and other charges recoverable from the client which are pending approval or certification by the client and Rs.123.80 Crore where the Company is confident of recovery based on advanced stage of negotiation and discussion. The recoverability is dependent upon the final outcome of the appeals & negotiations getting resolved in favour of the Company.

(b) The Company has cash losses from operations after reducing the interest payments and has unabsorbed losses to the tune of Rs. 775.32 Crore. These conditions, along with other matters as set forth in Note 36 of the financial statements, indicate the existence of an uncertainty as to timing and realisation of cash flow.

(c) Note 33(b) relating to the exposure of Rs. 197.16 Crore which includes non-fund based guarantees of Rs. 110.90 Crore towards acquisition of further stake of 35% in Sofinter. The transfer of shares to be done as detailed in the aforesaid note is essential to support the exposure of the Company towards the funded and non- funded exposure towards M/s Gammon Holdings (Mauritius) Limited for the additional 35% equity stake in Sofinter. Further the management has made assertions about the investment and reasons why the same does not require any provision towards diminution in the value of investment and loans provided. Relying on the assertions and on the further acquisition of interest in M/s Sofinter as detailed in the aforesaid note no adjustments have been made in the financials towards possible impairment.

(d) We also invite attention to Note 12(iv) & Note 12(v) in case of Gactel Turnkey Projects Limited & G&B Contracting LLC where the management has made assertions about the investment and reasons why the same does not require any provision towards diminution in the value of investment and loans provided.

Mumbai, Dated: 5 December 2014


Dec 31, 2013

We have audited the accompanying Financial Statements of Gammon India Limited ("the Company"), which comprises the Balance Sheet as at 31 December, 2013 and the Statement of Profit and Loss and the Cash Flow Statement for the period April 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013 ("period") and a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory notes on that date in which are incorporated the returns of the Nagpur branch including the overseas branches at Algeria, Nigeria, Kenya, Bhutan, Ethiopia & Italy audited by branch auditors.

Management''s Responsibility for the Financial Statements

Management is responsible for the preparation of these financial statements that give a true and fair view of the financial position, financial performance and cash flows of the Company in accordance with the accounting standards referred to in sub-section (3C) of Section 211 of the Companies Act, 1956 ("the Act") read with the General Circular 15/2013 dated September 13, 2013 of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs in respect of Section 133 of the Companies Act, 2013. This responsibility includes the design, implementation and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

Auditors Responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with the Standards on Auditing issued by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India. Those Standards require that we comply with ethical requirements and plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free from material misstatement.

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor''s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the Company''s preparation and fair presentation of the financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity''s internal control. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of the accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements.

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a reasonable basis for our qualified opinion.

Basis For Qualified Opinion

a. The accounts of one of the subsidiaries M/s Franco Tosi Meccanica S.p.A (FTM) have not been audited since December 2011 for reasons mentioned in note 33(c) of the financial statements which inter-alia covers the application for pre-insolvency composition agreement with creditors in Italian court and continuous shifting of dates and delays in conclusion of the process of restructuring. In the light of the on-going procedure the Commissioner in charge of the restructuring procedure has not released any financials. There are therefore no financials available after December 2012 being the date when the Management prepared the last financial statements, which were subject to audit. The management had during the previous year ended 31 March 2013 on a prudent basis made an ad-hoc provision towards possible impairment towards the investment in FTM. The management is actively pursuing sale of the stake in FTM as mentioned in note 33 (c). The group''s exposure in the said subsidiary (net of provisions and credit balance in Foreign Exchange Translation Reserve) is Rs. 570.42 Crore which includes the loans made and Investments made oft 268.44 Crore and the exposure of corporate guarantee towards the borrowing made by the overseas SPV through which the step down subsidiary is held of Rs. 301.98 Crore. Further there are guarantee exposures towards the non-fund based guarantees given to the projects of the said subsidiary oft 415.15 Crore outstanding as at 31 December 2013. In the absence of financial statements and financial information after 31 December 2012 we are unable to comment upon the adequacy or otherwise of the provision already made which cannot be quantified.

b. The accounts of M/s SAE Powerlines S.r.l, (SAE) a subsidiary of the Company, are as per unaudited management prepared accounts for which audit is not completed. On account of the accumulated losses and the lack of financial support from banks the going concern assumption needs to be tested by comprehensive audit procedures, which in the absence of audit being completed has not been ascertained. On the basis of bids available for which negotiations are going on for the stake sale of SAE, the Company has made provisions for impairment of investments, loans and towards corporate guarantee for acquisition loan of the said SAE, in excess of the offer price being negotiated as detailed in explanatory note no. 33(e). In the absence of firm offer for purchase of the stake in SAE, we are unable to comment on the adequacy of the provisions made thereof.

c. The Company has made contribution to various funds during the period of an amount oft 0.36 Crore. In view of the losses in the last three years the Company requires the permission of the members in the General meeting for making such donations and contributions to charitable institutions, which it has not obtained as required by clause (e) of sub-section (1) of Section 293 of the Companies Act, 1956. Had the donations not been made the losses would have been lower byt 0.36 Crore.

d. The Company''s Application for managerial remuneration for the Chairman and Managing Director and other executive directors is rejected for some of the previous years, partly accepted for some years and no decision has been taken for the balance years. In view of the same no effect has been given in the attached financial statements for the following:

i. Recovery of Managerial Remuneration of 2.10 Crore for year ended 31 March 2012 and 2013 for application rejected and partly allowed for which the company has gone into a review appeal.

ii. Managerial remuneration paid in excess of limits of 10.98 Crore for which no decision has been taken.

Qualified Opinion

In our opinion and to the best of our information and according to the explanations given to us, except for the possible effects of the matters described in our basis for qualified opinion paragraph, the financial statements give the information required by the Act in the manner so required and give a true and fair view in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in India:

(a) In the case of the Balance Sheet, of the state of affairs of the Company as at December 31, 2013;

(b) In the case of the Statement of Profit and Loss of the Loss for the period April 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013; and

(c) In the case of the Cash Flow Statement, of the cash flows for the year ended on that date. Emphasis of Matter

(a) We draw attention to Note no. 15(a) of the explanatory notes relating to recoverability of an amount of Rs. 150.09 Crore as at March 2013 out of which Rs.14.12 Crore has been collected under trade receivables in respect of contract revenue where the Company has received arbitration awards in its favor in respect of which the client has preferred an appeal for setting aside the said arbitration awards and Rs. 58 Crore where the Company is confident of recovery based on advanced stage of negotiation and discussion. The recoverability is dependent upon the final outcome of the appeals & negotiations getting resolved in favour of the company.

(b) We also invite attention to note 33(b) in case of Sofinter S.p.A where the management has made assertions about the investment and reasons why the same does not require any provision towards diminution in the value of investment and loans provided. Relying on the assertions no adjustments have been made in the financials towards possible impairment.

Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

3. We did not audit the financial statements of Gammon India Limited – Nagpur Branch which was audited by the branch auditors refecting total assets of Rs. 1,439.46 Crores and total revenue of Rs. 1,291.48 Crores whose reports have been received by us.

a. Note no B-12 to the notes to accounts relating to recoverability of an amount of 94.54 Crores under sundry debtors in respect of recognition of contract revenue in previous years where the Company has received arbitration awards in its favour in respect of which the client has preferred an appeal for setting aside the said arbitration awards. The recoverability is dependent upon the final outcome of the appeals getting resolved in favour of the Company.

b. Note no. 28C to the notes to accounts relating to the investments in one of the joint ventures of a wholly owned subsidiary which has applied for creditors protection in a Court in Italy. The final outcome and the resultant investment would be dependent upon the approval of the courts to the composition scheme pending which no effects have been taken in these accounts.

c. Note no. 38(b) to the notes to accounts relating to recognition of variation claims and revenue in respect of works carried out by the joint venture in Oman, where the final outcome of the project is dependent on the resolution of the disputes and settlement of the claims by the client.
